Community resilience

Following the tragedy at Grenfell and the Parsons Green terror attack, the council decided to harness and co-ordinate the community spirit seen during these major crises. We've created a new community resilience project with the community working in collaboration with the council to discuss how it could do things better and how best to involve residents and local groups in response to an emergency.

It started with a community ideas 'hackathon'. Out of that came a community emergency extranet, training sessions to create an army of community volunteers and a growing network of links and relationships via the neighbourhood social media site Nextdoor.
